The beautiful temple Ulun Danu Bratan lies on a small peninsula on the shore of Lake Bratan. This lake plays an important role in irrigating the area and the southern part of the island; that is why the temple complex is dedicated to Dewi Danu, the goddess of water.
The temple was built in 1633 and consists of a complex of temples spread out over several islands. The temple is actually half Hindu and half Buddhist, with a central altar for ceremonies. The main temple, the Pura Teratai Bang, has a characteristic 7-tier tower, while the island also features a temple with 11 roofs. Take a close look at the construction of Ulun Danu Bratan; it seems as if the sacred building floats on the water.
